Pacific Sunwear of California Inc. announced it has purchased an undeveloped nineteen-acre parcel of land located in Anaheim, subject to final approvals and finalizing certain side agreements.
The purchase price of the land is $12.1 million and escrow is expected to close in December 2000. The property is being purchased from Boeing North American Fitness Inc.
